rlintz Not to wander too far off topic but if I were in the market for another 7 string, I'd have to at least consider importing one from Ishibashi - if you're more into natural tops, the RG2027, RG2127, and RG8527.

Chud I love the look about that much does it cost if anyone knows

germX having tried the 1077XL, i find it a very good player on its own merits. i've expressed this concern before, for those of us with small hands & has a shred tendency, the 1077 is lethargy inducing. but its low freq domination is tops! it has a different manifestation of bottom end notes (maybe just my ears), maybe it's the scale length after all... BTW- the pickups in there are dimarzios hypocrisy, slayer, mayhem, morbid angel, empror- no problem...

Two hands31 Here's the thread with the inlay suggestions. Anyone notice something?


Looks a little similar, eh? Foreshadowing?? What is that inlay supposed to be anyways?

Dylan7620 personaly i dont understand why it costs soo much. 1350 in musicians friend. fieldy's K5 is like 750. i have a 7620 and the only thing i kinda envy is that mohogany body for lower end stuff, but right now im workin on improving so its nice to have the lighter spunkier sound of basswood. if the K7 was dropped to like $900 then i think more people might consider it. i think the K7 logo looks cool.....that is, if your IN korn. i kinda think it screams i wanna be in KoRn!!! well, theres my 3 cents

BucketBot As far as the K-7 goes, I would just leave the inlay. So it has K-7 on the 11th, 12th and 13th fret, big deal. I'm more concerned with how a guitar sounds and plays then how it looks. I think the K-7 sounds, plays and looks great.

I hope you didn't just literally rip it out of there, and actually put something in there to replace it. And yeah, there were some really sweet inlay ideas a while ago to cover it.

jemsite removing the inlay's been discussed... people even posted designs to "cover" it up. It's just huge, spanning several frets... not very easy or realistic, especially for an axe priced near $1k... glen

caprile I agree that the 1077 is a better looking and more versatile instrument. However, make sure you play the 1077 a lot before buying. The longer scale definetely isn't for everyone. I personally hate it.

The K7 is great, but a used RG7620 would be a better option. (That is, if you live in the US....the rest of us are screwed!)

Chud I also dont understand why people knock the K7. When i tried it it sounded really good through a half stack on distortion and when you put the clean channel on the PAFs sound great. The U-bar in my opinion is good as well but you've got to remember that korn used to do alot of trem palming which knocked the guitar out of tune so for the music they play its very good.

Two hands31 If the K-7 had a tone knob, no U-Bar, and a better inlay (see the "Thoughtless" vid, or Munky's "Paw print" guitar) I'd be all over it...along side the RG-1077XL. Unfortunately, they screwed up by putting that inlay there IMHO

darren wilson If the K7 didn't have that inlay, it'd be a tough call. Personally, i prefer the H-H configuration, and i've really been getting into the sound of mahogany lately.

But the 1077 is a more versatile instrument, has the benefit of the longer scale length and does look incredibly classy with white pickups to match the bound body, fretboard and headstock.

But that inlay on the K7 is a huge deterrent for me personally, so my choice would be the 1077.

GhesQi J Same opinion as James.

1077 all the way.
